If there was one play that typified the kind of night Madison County (3-2, 1-1 Bull Run District) had, it was the final play of the first half. The ball at midfield, the Mountaineers could have easily gone into the break by taking a knee and enjoyed starting the second half with a three possession lead. Instead Madison coach Stuart Dean decided to give a trick play a whirl and thanks to a lot of running from Ashton Weakly and a timely fumble recovery from Logan Carpenter, the Mountaineers had put the game out of reach.

It was just one of those nights, and coming off a tough loss last week to Manassas Park, the 33-7 drubbing of George Mason was exactly the kind of win this team was looking for.

With time expired, the receiver’s timely fumble bounced right at the goalline as he was being brought down. And as if it had been planned the whole time, Carpenter was there to pick it up and walk in for the touchdown to make it 26-0 at the half.

With the rain coming down at a steady pace in the second half, not a lot of accomplished. A drive aided by a pair of costly penalties on third down allowed Mason to work its way into the endzone. However, Madison answered back with Graves’ second passing touchdown.

Running back Logan Carpenter finished the game with 18 carries for 150 yards and three touchdowns. Weakly had three catches for 62 yards and a score. Smith also hauled in three catches and had 37 yards and a touchdown. Graves was 8 for 11 passing for 145 yards and two scores.
